Recipe Comments & Reviews

Hunny & I prepared this last evening & was as I remembered from the 1970's though sans nutmeats. Thank You to a fabulous Team & Finders of a beloved Recipe believed lost forever.
I plan to serve these cookies at my dau's HS graduation party. Turned out great. Makes a lot with just a little effort. Put them in the freezer. Delish!
This is so buttery and delicious I could eat it all day.
The shortbread base was crumbly and overdone at 22 minutes. Next time I'll try 20 minutes.
Super simple and delicious, a definite keeper! I used more chocolate chips than the recipe called for to make spreading easier.
It was excellent and I put it in the freezer before I served them.
As a toffee lover, I'd had this recipe on my fridge (it was inside a margarine box) for months waiting for an opportunity. I made it for my son's graduation party in addition a bakery cake and homemade brownies. The cookies flew off the plate,and were gone first. Abolutely delicious and incredibly easy. I'm waiting for a new opportunity to make them again. I'd make them just to make them, but then likely I'd be eating to many. Addictive.
